Fossil gets active with Sport smartwatch

Fossil has unveiled its new Fossil Sport smartwatch, becoming the second company to feature Qualcomm's battery-extending Snapdragon Wear 3100 technology.

Today, Fossil announces its latest smartwatch simply called: the Fossil Sport.

The company says the 350 mAh unit, with the help of Wear 3100, will be able to eke out a day of life based on the "full smartwatch experience", which we assume includes some HR tracking and Global Positioning System.

Fossil says the watch's 350mAh battery will last upwards of 24 hours on a single charge, and there's even a new battery saver mode that will supposedly eke out two extra days of battery life. But the Fossil Sport at least sounds like it's not outrageously priced. The fitness-oriented Wear OS device will run the latest version of Wear OS with a revamped fitness and navigation UI. The watch can track your heart rate and record runs and workouts with its altimeter, accelerometer, and gyroscope sensors and Global Positioning System functionality.

While there's still a noticeable lack of smartphone manufacturers working with Wear OS, Fossil is still churning out Wear OS watches left and right.

If you're feeling impatient, you can get your hands on the watch through Fossil's website starting today. One that's meant to make smartwatches more useful and support longer battery life. There are also two sizes 41mm and 43mm with 18mm or 22mm bands, respectively, and the watch cases are made of aluminum and nylon which keeps the weight down.
